I am plugged into 50 amp service at Tyndall AFB Famcamp, and I have not turned the propane on.ThThis When we first got to the camp, I smelled propane smells, and turned the propane valve off, until I have daylight and can see whats going on. Shouldn't this Norcold refrigerator run on electrical power only when it is plugged in to power? This winter, the unit ran out of propane when I had the heater on. I'm hoping that the propane smell is caused by a pilot that is supposed to be lit somewhere and is not lit. I'm going to look up the manual on line and try to find out how many pilot lights I have on this coach. I honestly believe the frig should work on electrical power only. I have a green light on the frig that blinks 3 times. I have a yellow light telling me to check gas supply if flashing, and it is flashing. I guess it's flashing because the propane valve is turned off. Would appreciate any advice for this newbie. Thanks for reading.
The auto mode should automatically look for 120vac electrical power and also must have 12vdc available for the contols, whether gas or electric.
Propane tends to smell when the tank is almost empty and that might be your problem.
